TNI Bureau: BJP president Nitin Gadakari landed in a fresh trouble for his controversial remark over Swami Vivekananda, who is the ideal for millions of youths, comparing with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. The leader is still battling all the corruption charges leveled against him, he dared to compare the ideology of the saint with the most wanted criminal.
Gadkari said the intelligent quotient (IQ) of Swami Vivekananda and Dawood Ibrahim was almost same but the usage was different. While the spiritual leader was using it for building nation, brotherhood, spiritualism and character, the don was doing it for spreading crime and terror.
Such remarks will definitely raise the eyebrows of billions, but Gadkari seems to save his image by passing on such comments.
“In psychology, we measure IQ level of people… But it depends from person to person, in which area they use their intelligence,” Gadkari said at an award ceremony in Nagpur.
He said that the IQ level of Vivekananda can be compared with Dawood. The remark came while he was talking about the discrimination between men and women on the basis of caste, religion, language and gender.
